You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. —Wayne Gretzky
this is an incredible book about meditation in general and a new way of seeing the world as it is not as a construction of your self. I recommend this listen to everyone who is like me always anxious for no reason, like the world is about to end at any instant.
I'm planning to listen to it many times, probably two or three times a year.
This is a serious talk by a serious man about a serious subject: our own disordered thinking.
As J. Krishnamurti says, “This is not an entertainment.” Those expecting simplistic happy-talk answers to their problems should probably stick to specialists in TV psychobabble. That is not what Krishnamurti was about.
As one biographical source explains: “Krishnamurti touched the lives of more spiritual seekers than almost any other realized teacher of our time. His central message: the discovery of truth – enlightenment – could not be attained by following any leader, institution, or ideology, but only through serious personal inquiry into your own experiences.”
That is what Krishnamurti is asking his listeners to do in this lecture.
Look at the disorganization of their own thoughts.
As they say in the Alcoholic Anonymous program: “My own best thinking got me here.”
In this lecture, Krishnamurti explains why our best thinking is part of our problem, and not the solution we may be seeking:
“Thought, whatever it is, is disorder … thought is really the most mischievous thing in life ... thought has created this awful mess in the world …is it possible to bring about order? The realization that thought brings about disorder is an extraordinary revelation … that insight is going to bring about order …that order is the order of the universe …”
If you are going to listen to this lecture, listen to it carefully and listen to it often.
